A Big Old Moon Art Project

We were pretty excited around here when the Super-Moon made an appearance. We couldn’t see it from our house, so Christian armed himself with his camera and ventured out to the park to catch the moon between clouds. It was huge and low and orangey and beautiful, and totally awe-inspiring.

The other thing it inspired was a moon art project. Grab your card stock and your masking tape, folks, ’cause we’re getting all Buzz Aldren up in here!



Tear up a whole lot of masking tape pieces and place them on the top 2/3 area of the white card stock in a general circle.

Trace around a bowl onto the black card stock and cut out the circle.

Place this piece over the masking tape area and fill in any empty spots with more tape pieces. Glue the black card stock on top of the tape/white card stock. Draw and cut out a bunch of little white stars and glue them onto the black card stock around the moon.

  1. Hey Jeanette!

    I haven’t been here in FOREVER. I really lost art inspiration. I need the inspiration back, plus I really missed you.

    Life got in the way.

    This project is excellent as usual.

    It reminds me of the Laurie Berkner song..

    Moon Moon Moon – Shining Bright!
    Moon Moon Moon – my night light. (click, turn it off)
    Moon Moon Moon – I can see
    Moon moon Moon, you’re taking care of me!

    Hee hee!

    Thanks for the awesome project! We are going to try this.

  2. I agree the masking tape is a fab idea for recreating the texture of the moon. Attaching it to a lampshade is extra special too. We’ve had a long standing obsession with the moon in my family.

    • The moon is the coolest, isn’t it? I think it’s a pretty good subject for art projects- and come to think of it, so are stars! I’d better get on that idea… thanks for your comment!

  3. Inspiring from your project and creating for our Mid-Autumn Festival art project.
    Thanks for your sharing! You can see the creation on my blog.
    Love it! (:
